Arizona is a one-party consent state when it comes to recording conversations between two individuals. If you and another party are having a conversation, it is legal for you to record the conversation. It is NOT legal to record a conversation between two other parties unless one of the parties has...Read more »
Perjury is a criminal offense. To press charges you would make a police report and go to the Attorney General. However, in the case where the person committed the perjury the lawyer for that person is the Attorney General. So me going to the Attorney General would be a conflict of interest so how...

If I understand you correctly, you are accusing someone in the attorney general's office of perjury or possibly accusing a state employee in their official capacity of perjury. Either way, it is almost certain that the person you are wishing to have charges pressed against for perjury would be...Read more »
Arizona is a one party consent state. As long as the person recording was engaged in the conversation being recorded, there is no violation of the law. If the party placed a recording device and surreptitiously recorded a conversation between two other people, THAT is illegal. Difficult to develop...Read more »
If the case was dismissed, you did not plead guilty and you were not convicted. Even if it was a delayed entry of guilt, if you completed the requirements and the Court dismissed the case without entering your plea, then you still did not plead guilty on the record and the Court did not convict...Read more »
Someone in TX was sending 6 different people packages containing drugs. They were pulled over and arrested on the way to the post office. What do the recipients of those packages need to watch out for? Can they be arrested? Is it likely? The sender was arrested for trafficking.
It is unlikely you could be arrested at this point but you could certainly be placed under observation and/or questioned regarding the package which was addressed to you. Absent evidence of communication between the two of you regarding your agreement to receive the package, they do not have much...Read more »
A witness who makes an inconsistent statement on the witness stand that goes against prior statements can and should be subject to impeachment by a defense attorney during cross-examination. The defense attorney can then argue that the witness should not be believed because they made inconsistent...Read more »
Now would probably be a better time than any other that I can think of. The court system is trying to keep people out of jail at the moment, and therefore they may be more likely to reinstate you on probation than to revoke it. Of course, that is assuming all other things being equal. More...Read more »
If your husband and a co-defendant are both being represented by the public defenders office, THAT is a problem. The PD cannot merely assign two separate attorneys to co-defendants. The court must appoint conflict counsel to one of the defendants from outside the PD's office.
A bow is not a firearm. To the best of my knowledge, there is no prohibited possessor statute under Arizona or federal law which applies to bows. You should not be in violation of any law by bowhunting with a felony on your criminal record.
Revised details. Family court date set for Friday 17th. She submitted to evidence a snap shot of a text between her and me daughter stating “try to record him”, (my wife and I conversation). If I recall at that moment we were in the car driving home. I very lightly talking to my wife about my... Read more »
You would need to file a report with the law enforcement agency in whose jurisdiction the alleged crime allegedly occurred. For the "solicitation" that would be wherever the conversation took place. If the recording was actually made, you would need to contact the agency within whose...Read more »
The longer you wait, the worse any potential consequences may be. It would be better to have an attorney communicate with law enforcement for you but, if that is not an option, you may want to notify them that your previous statements may have been incorrect. You do not have to outright say you...Read more »
She got mad cause I came into some money I got tired of her asking for money so I went and stayed at a hotel. While I was there she broke into my room and stole everything. I want to press charges. Now shes threatening me
You need to contact the law enforcement agency in whose jurisdiction your brother's home is located to file a report for burglary, theft, and threatening communications. You may also have to seek a protective order through the Pima County courts. Very tough situation. I wish you the best.
A lot of prayer. In all seriousness, if your income qualifies you for a public defender, then the Court will assign one. If you do not qualify for a public defender, you are likely going to need a Go Fund Me account or a wealthy relative (or you are going to have to implement austerity measures in...Read more »
I am supposed to be awarded attorney fees in my case that is still pending, but at a mediation setting on another matter, I was threatened with "they will sue you for breach if you do not vacate your judges ruling?"
A girl experienced sexual abuse by her father as a baby. The mother of the baby found out but could not report or leave the father because she lacked evidence. With a long history of psychiatric issues the mother was afraid that her child would be taken from her and end up living with the father.... Read more »
Mandatory reporting requirements are meant to ensure the safety of the child or vulnerable adult who could be abused or neglected. According to the facts you have provided, the child no longer exists (because they are now an adult). Without a potential victim, I would argue the duty to report does...Read more »
She charged me with domestic violence but I took it to court and won cause I wad the one beat up in the pictures and she didn't have marks and we have no court orders in place and im on my daughters birth certificate
No, this isn't kidnapping. Without enforceable orders in place, there really aren't many limitations on a parent's ability to travel with children. You should consult with a family law attorney to evaluate your options. The best course of action may be to file a petition to establish...Read more »
